Great article!! Thanks for sharing!

Having finally been diagnosed last year (at age 54) with ADD, it was actually a relief for me to finally know what’s “wrong” with me … because for all of my life I’ve felt “different.” I wasn’t terrified, I was happy to have the diagnosis confirmed: it was like the proverbial “aha!!” moment when it all finally comes together and I understood at last many things about myself and perhaps why I am like I am, and why I have done/do the things I do.

After receiving the long-awaited news, I immediately checked out “Scattered”, a fabulous, eye-opening book which — like the author of this piece — I also recommend to one and all. Some people might realize that they, too, have ADD or they might see it in friends and relatives. Then you all might be able to “harness the superpower" of ADD rather than living a scattered life.

Again, great read!!
